Life is no longer a mystery – Madonna will perform her chart-topping anthem Like A Prayer at this month’s Eurovision Song Contest in Israel, it has been revealed.

The queen of pop will also sing a song from her new album, Madame X, during the  grand finale on Saturday, 18 May.

Two days prior to that she will take to the stage during the event’s second semi-final for a highly-anticipated interview about her affection for Israel and the song contest.

Israel’s public broadcaster KAN confirmed last month that the 60-year-old icon will make an appearance on stage, with the expected $1million (£770,000) cost being met by Israeli-Canadian billionaire Sylvan Adams.

Her Eurovision gig will mark the fourth time Madonna has performed in the Holy Land, following on from shows in 1993, 2009 and 2012.

Madonna has also enjoyed personal trips to Israel previously, having become involved with Kabbalah following an introduction from her friend, Jewish actress Sandra Bernhard.

Netta Barzilai earned Israel its fourth win at the Eurovision Song Contest last year, meaning the 2019 grand finale will be held in Tel Aviv on May 18.
